The Cernuschi is the city of Paris Asian arts museum, as opposed to the Guimet which is the French states. The museum is in a very nice location, just by Parc Monceau, worth a stroll. It has very fine collections, and is absolutely worth a...More

This was Paris' most fancy neighborhood toward the end of the 19th Century. This townhouse displays a private collection of important Asian art. The area around it is exquisite.

A charming mid-sized museum of Chinese art, less overwhelming than the Musée Guimet, the national museum of Asian art. The perdant collection is free, but temporary exhibitions have an entrance fee. I went to see an exhibit on the culture of incense in Imperial China...More

What a remarkable collection of Chinese and Japanese art works from major Dynasties over the years! Moreover, it was breathtaking to see the very large Buddha, which took up a very large percentage of the first floor! Some have suggested that M. Cernuschi built his...More

Best reason to visit: It's set in a magnificent mansion that is typical of the fancy houses built in Paris late Nineteenth Century. Collection is good enough.

This small-ish Asian art museum seemed mostly Chinese to me — lovely. The non-permanent exhibitions — currently Perfumes of China — are also excellent. Combine this with a visit to the Parc Manceau adjoining.
